How to consume

Key concepts when purchasing olive oil:

  • Olives are stone fruits, like cherries and plums. So real extra virgin olive oil is fresh-squeezed fruit juice – seasonal, perishable, and never better than the first few weeks it was made.
  • Bitterness and pungency are usually indicators of an oil’s healthfulness. Sweetness and butteriness are often not.
  • Like all natural fruit juices, its flavor and aroma begin to deteriorate within a few months of milling, a decline that accelerate when the oil is bottled, and really speeds up when the bottle is opened.
  • When choosing bottled oil, prefer dark glass or other containers that protect against light, buy a quantity that you’ll use up quickly, and keep it well sealed in a cool, dark place. Even an excellent oil can rapidly go rancid when left sitting under a half-bottle of air, or in a hot or brightly-lit conditions.
  • Avoid bargain prices, because producing genuine extra virgin oil is expensive. Low prices – under about US$10 for a liter – strongly suggest that the oil you’re buying is inferior.
  • Once you’ve bought your oil, store it in a place where it is protected from light, heat and oxygen, the three enemies of good oil, which speed spoilage. And don’t stockpile! Even great oils deteriorate with each passing day, and will all too soon become ordinary, even rancid, if not consumed quickly.
